"Having read the comic this was based on and remembering all the footnotes by Backderf (author of the comics), I maybe got more out of this than the casual viewer. Ross Lynch is terrific as Dahmer. Exactly as depicted in the original comic. But what really stood out to me in the comic was the sympathy the author had for Dahmer. Not demonizing him. Not that the film did either, but the film felt more clinical after having read the comic and hearing deeper analysis on Jeff’s life and struggles."

"Hilarious on paper, but not so much acted out. Lampshading the romcom tropes don’t make the romcom tropes of this movie any less tropy."
|61 54%||Suite Francaise (2014) - Apr 05, 2019
"This film has the opposite problem to a similar European war-era romance piece “Birdsong”. Whereas the story of former was solid, the leads were miscast. Here it’s the other way around. Cast is brilliant to every minor character. But the story is clumsy and bare-boned. Considering it was written by a literary layman, it’s no wonder. I like the theme, but it doesn’t much delve into any depths except proclaiming that war is horrible and not all people on the opposing side are horrible."

"I’m geniunely surprised how enjoyable this film was. Fantastic vocal performances and excellent musical adaptations. As my kid is completely enamored with this film and I’ve been forced to re-watch this several times, it actually holds pretty well for re-watching. Sweet enough for small children but has enough of tanginess for a more mature taste. "
|63 61%||Ready Player One (2018) - Apr 05, 2019
"Enjoyed the references, cultural nods and Easter eggs. Otherwise a formulative youth flick of the in-high-demand fantasy such as Hunger Games, etc. Good, non-forced, female leads and the bit with the haplo suit performance features were enjoyable/hilarious, but too few and far between. Otherwise pretty forgettable and bland. Had a Matrixian flare, but none of the complexity and moral depth. But that is to be expected from a youth film."

"More awkward than funny."
|60 50%||Hidden Figures (2016) - Apr 05, 2019
"As much as I admire the history behind the movie, this seems like an agenda movie. Minority fanfare with not much critique and character analysis. Enpowering, yes, but in the same vein that Rambo is to little boys, this is to (self-)entitled little girls."
